Ingredients

CHOCOLATE CROISSANT BREAD PUDDING

6
chocolate croissants, very coarsely chopped
1 1/4 c
milk
1/2 c
sugar
1 Tbsp
vanilla
1/2 tsp
cinnamon
1/4 tsp
nutmeg
3
large eggs

TRIFLE

1 box
(6-oz) butterscotch pudding, cooked according to pkg. directions, then cooled
4
bananas, sliced
4
snickers bars, chopped fine
1
(12-oz) container whipped topping (i use 2 cups whipped cream)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
2
Put chocolate croissant chunks in an 8x8-inch baking dish. In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg and eggs. Pour mixture over croissants. Let sit for at least 10 minutes.
3
Bake for 40 minutes. Let cool to room temperature.
4
Into the trifle bowl, add half of the croissant pudding. Spread it out evenly. Scoop in half of the butterscotch pudding, add a layer of banana slices and half of the chopped Snickers bars. Smooth on half of the whipped topping. Repeat the layers, ending on whipped cream, top with a final sprinkling of Snickers. (Don't add this last topping until just before serving.)

Note:
I can't find the chocolate croissants here in my little town, so I use regular, plain croissants and add about a cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. One time I melted 2 squares of semi-sweet chocolate and mixed it in with the egg mixture before pouring over the croissants. Both work well.
